Pavé Seed Pearl and Diamond Heart Brooch


This classic Edwardian heart brooch is a study in whites, with its pavé-set surface of natural seed pearls, their silky luster and subtle pink iridescence creating an intriguing contrast with the center-set chunky old mine-cut diamond that blazes with white light and fire. Wear close to the heart as a brooch, or on a delicate chain or ribbon, with the option to suspend a favorite charm, gem or pendant watch from its tip.
